The Administrative Data Research Network was an ESRC-funded project that ran from October 2013 to July 2018. It is currently at the end of its funding cycle and is no longer taking applications. Administrative data research will be taken forward in a new project, to be launched later in 2018.

This archival website reflects the state of play at the end of the project in July 2018. All content has been frozen and may not be up to date.

Training for Researchers

ADRC-Scotland’s Public Engagement team understands that researchers need to be supported to develop their own public engagement activities and they developed a one day workshop designed to help researchers across Scotland develop greater understanding of public engagement in research and develop a plan for engaging the public in their work. The workshop had 30 attendees and focused on those undertaking research using secondary data for research purposes and the ways in which the public can be engaged in these particular projects.

It is an expectation of most funders and universities that researchers will undertake some form of public engagement either during the research process or prior to funding, this workshop will help you develop plans for public engagement and involvement in your own research area

The workshop covered:

  • Background to public engagement
  • The need for public engagement in administrative data research
  • The public perceptions of research using administrative data
  • How to begin the process of public engagement
  • Who to engage in your research
  • Developing public engagement events
